UK: The BBC is launching a year long season of science and technology programming under the banner of Tomorrow’s World. Tony Hall, BBC Director-General, says: “We will produce more than 40 hours of television, a range of programmes across our radio networks, a series of podcasts, and digital offerings.”
Press release from BBC Media Centre:
It will take science out of the lab and into peoples’ homes, as we seek to address how science is changing peoples’ lives, reshaping the world, and rewriting the future of healthcare. Our aim is to make science personal with the biggest scientific partnership we have ever convened to answer the big questions relevant to everyone.
Tony Hall, BBC Director-General, says: “We’ve come together behind a simple, and very bold ambition – to equip all of us with the knowledge and understanding we need to make sense of our lives and the future. Whether it’s the rise of robotics or the demise of antibiotics, travelling to Mars or the arrival of 3D printed food. Science is changing the world at an extraordinary pace.
“The campaign will connect audiences with the brightest minds and institutions in science and technology, producing more than 40 hours of television, a range of programmes across our radio networks, a series of podcasts, and digital offerings, made in collaboration with partners, including the Science Museum Group, Wellcome, The Open University and the Royal Society.”
